A nor'easter is still blanketing New Jersey this morning as strong winds and snow create dangerous driving conditions through the tri-state area.

As of this morning at 5:30 AM, snow accumulations total anywhere between 8-10 inches, with some areas receiving less, and the snow is expected to continue until at least 1 PM today.

High winds and low temperatures are causing dangerous driving conditions and people are being warned not to drive unless it's an emergency. Wind chill temperatures make it feel like it's in the single digits, so be sure to bundle up when you do go out to clean your car or shovel your walkway and driveway today.

Due to the storm, roads, railways,  buses, and bridges have been impacted.

A 19-vehicle chain reaction in New York occurred last night  as cars slid into one another on the slick roadways on the Henry Hudson Parkway.

Gov. Phil Murphy Wednesday signed an executive order declaring a state of emergency.  New York Governor Cuomo also signed a state of the emergency order.

NJ Transit bus service was suspended at 6 p.m., commuter trains stopped at 7:30 p.m., and light rail service ended at 8 p.m. last night.

Today, Thursday, NJ Transit reports rail service will remain temporarily suspended along with central and northern New Jersey bus service including routes serving the Trenton-area and Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City. Hudson-Bergen Light Rail and Newark Light Rail service remains suspended as do all Access Link service except for Region 3 in South Jersey.
